Kendrick lamar grammys28-year-old rap artist, Kendrick Lamar won the most awards at the 58th GRAMMY Awards, held at Los Angeles  on Monday night. He scooped five prizes: best rap song, best rap performance, best rap/sung collaboration, best music video and best rap album.

He also galvanized the event with a politically charged performance of The Blacker the Berry and Alright with a stage production that saw him coming on stage in chains, and finished with a map of Africa with the word “Compton” in the middle – his home city.

Lamar had received 11 nominations for this year’s Grammys, beating Eminem’s record as the rapper with the most nominations in a single night, and coming in second only to Michael Jackson for the most nominations ever. Taylor Swift and the Weeknd received seven nominations each.  Taylor Swift’s 1989 took the album of the year award. Having opened the show with a version of her hit Out of the Woods, the singer made a defiant acceptance speech which seemed to allude to her argument with Kanye West earlier in the week. The rapper’s new song Famous, referring to Swift, claims: “I made that bitch famous.”

Two years since the release of his ‘Intellect Is Power’ album, Chicago lyricist Intellect reminds listeners with ‘Intellectual Intelligence’ that Chicago is still an epicenter when it comes to producing superb Hip-Hop artists. Blazing a trail of his own like the city heroes that came before him, Intellect lets his versatility reflect in both hardcore slapping records for core Hip-Hop lovers and sensual mood chillers for the listener that requires a break from gritty rhymes. ‘Intellectual Intelligence’ hits all streaming platforms September 8th.
“I take the ordinary and put my own twist on it. That is what makes me stand out not to mention that my word play is elevated. Greatness is as greatness does. Dare to be great. That’s a code I live by, and I want those that listen to my music to understand that.” – Intellect
“If we are speaking on Intellect’s rap techniques, they exceed! He orchestrates seamless flows, complex rhymes, and witty punchlines.” FM Hip-Hop
“With more than a point to prove and a needle to adjust on the creativity meter, Intellect is set to disrupt the system and he plans to do so with his first task of business seen in his upcoming visual, Ephesians 6:11. “Putting on the armor of God” as the title (and verse) references, Intellect is equipped for war with his lethal lyrical delivery.” APEX Coture
“Not forced to be part of a movement that everyone is finding trendy at the moment, the Chicago native pairs cultivated lyrics of persuasion with his colorful metaphors.” – Hip Hop Since 1987
“the Chicago native pairs cultivated lyrics of persuasion with his colorful metaphors that he’s becoming recognizable for and does so with ease.”Hip Hop Magazine
“Blazing a trail of his own like the city heroes that came before him, Intellect lets his versatility reflect in both hardcore slapping records for core Hip-Hop lovers and sensual mood chillers for the listener that requires a break from gritty rhymes.” – DJ Iceberg
“Chicago-bred rapper Intellect is defining what it means to be a lyrical rapper in 2022. His style can be described as versatile, unique, confident, and honest.” – Remixd Magazine
‘Intellectual Intelligence’ comes on the heels of Intellect’s “Father’s Day” and “Luv the Way” both which received positive reviews from traditional Hip-Hop and Rap outlets. The new project is available now on all streaming platforms.
